What's the cure to my hypokalemic periodic paralysis and to my renal parenchymal disease?

What's the cure to my hypokalemic periodic paralysis and to my renal parenchymal disease?

No Cure: Hpp is a genetic disorder--there is no cure. The treatment for some patients is complex but for others taking potassium, beta blockers and additional meds before exercise/stress is all that is required. The renal disease may not be related. Typically patients with periodic paralysis do not have low potassiums between episodes which can cause kidney injury. See a kidney doc for answers. ...Read more

What's the relation or connection between hypokalemic periodic paralysis and kub utz finding "renal parenchymal disease, bilateral"?

What's the relation or connection between hypokalemic periodic paralysis and kub utz finding "renal parenchymal disease, bilateral"?

Relationship: There is no relation between hypokalemic periodic paralysis and your renal utz findings. You will need to see nephrologist to have a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance (cc) to see what your kidney function is. Remember, utz findings are subjective and a cc is an objective finding of your renal function. Good luck. ...Read more

No overnight stay is required unless complications arise. You will be put under general anesthesia and the surgery lasts approximately 30 minutes. Your total recovery time varies from 1-2 weeks. The cervix, however, usually takes 4-6 weeks to heal completely. ...Read more

Cervical conization- what can I expect to happen?

Easy procedure: A cold cone biopsy of the cervix is a quick procedure & usually done in the or in case heavy bleeding is encountered. Either a general anesthetic, IV sedation, or a local injection can be used. I prefer a combination of the later two and my patients do very well. They rarely feel any pain & appreciate the short nap. ...Read more

What is a cervical conization?

What is a cervical conization?

Remove precancerous: Cervical conization is a surgery to remove a section of the cervix when there are pre-cancerous cells. This can usually be done in the office, and recovery is not too uncomfortable. Extra repeat pap smears should still be done to make sure all pre-cancerous cells are gone and don't return. Can still have kids after, but cervix can be weak or scarred, so will need special attention when pregnant. ...Read more

Having hpv 16&58 had cold knife conization 2 weeks ago due to HGSIL. Waiting for pathology results. Your advice for boosting immunity. I don't smoke.

Having hpv 16&58 had cold knife conization 2 weeks ago due to HGSIL. Waiting for pathology results. Your advice for boosting immunity. I don't smoke.

Too late for vaccine: At age 45 + the presence of HGSIL already, it is too late to be immunized with the HPV vaccine which is recommended for ages 11 and up for both boys and girls. After the coniization, you will need regular follow up care with your GYN to avoid recurrences and Rx if you do have them. By the way, be very careful about future sex partners by screening them carefully pre event. ...Read more
